's lead, obama care plus success equals one massive right wing freakout. president obama's health care law is working. and many on the right just can't handle it. here's what i'm talking about. >> well, nelson mandela stood up against a great injustice and was willing to pay a huge price for that. that's the reason he's mourned today because of that struggle he performed. bu
people get health care, as obama care. >> right. >> and then thinking that people are -- >> that's their -- that's their logic. >> you know, i do want the to -- let's do the history professor thing a little bit. because krystal, there was this thing during the bush administration called the unitary executive. and this was the idea that was put forward by dick cheney and david addington and their crew that george w. bush had to have extraordinary power. he could set aside the geneva conventions on things like torture. so is the irony just being missed by republicans, that they used to want george w. bush to be extraordinarily power and now they don't like president obama being an uber, meaning awesome president? >> yeah, they were totally comfortable with president bush having wide-ranging executive -- far-reaching and you know, ground-breaking really executive power. this president not so much. but the thing that i find really fascinating too, and you'll remember, it started very early when he started appointing people and he had the -- what they were calling green jobs czars and
that many democrats face right now, being so closely associated with some of the mistakes of obama care. but in reality, i think that a.b. has a really good point, which is that he is actually going to be somebody who helps drive the wedge between president obama and hillary clinton but i think that van has a good point in the sense that there's really not a whole lot that can be done to really separate the two, and it could become a very -- a big problem if hillary looks like she's trying to run away from obama in a democratic primary. >> everyone is right but i'm not going to stop that here. i want to play a clip of something rush limbaugh has said which is getting a lot of attention, talking about pope francis, and pope francis' comments about capitalism. let's listen. >> somebody has either written this for him or gotten to him. this is just pure marxism coming out of the mouth of the pope. >> you know, rush limbaugh is not running for office but there are a lot of republican catholics who one day could be, kevin. chris christie, paul ryan, among others. do you expect any of them to
they do is get hungry. that, i'm sure is the debate that is taking place in obama right now. which is look does it actually resolve something or does all it does is acknowledge that we fail and em bolden the opposition? so the politics are ambiguous. you know, beyond the politics though probably another thing he's thinking about. the -- this was a signature domestic achievement. it wasn't coming what hurricane katrina. it was coming as a long-planned event and the roleout of disastrous. something went wrong. and someone is responsible for that. whether that is west wing or deep within the bowl of the health and hiewfm services or secretary kathleen. i don't understands the problem well enough it know. someone is accountable he kim toot presidency without a lot of executive or administrative experience. in certain times up until now it's not a problem. >> why politico pushing for president obama to shake up the cabinet. there's no reason to call for firing anyone. [inaudible] >> guest: but -- >> host:
: hi. think obama is a little bit nonchalant about health care. if we cannot appeal this lot right now, wait until he gets out of office and then appeal law. too many people are suffering. thank you. host: should someone be fired? rose, are you there? daniel, washington, dc. democrat. what do you think? should the president hold somebody accountable and fire someone? i think the people he would fire, he does not have the executive reach to do. this is a republican chief justice that voted -- that had the swing vote. essentially it is insurance reform. he does not have the reach to fire insurance company executives. moderatelydly, republican health care reform -- it is getting a little bit more insurance for a little but more people. he is trying to exercise measure and judgment to see it follow- through. staying the course and policy is ihis think what he should do. on your point about the politics, that is the headline in the wall street journal. report -- it says later on in the article gavea recent poll republicans a narrow edge on the question of which party voters would like to se
care act, obama care right now and people are talking about it all over the country and it's a great opportunity for republicans. for to us have a huge year like we did in 1994 we'll have to have the sort of alternatives that bill is talking about. do you hear that, whether it's republican governor's association or in washington now, there is that understanding. i would be stunned if you didn't see a variety of alternatives. >> david gregory for those running for re-election and all the negative messages that are in this narrative right now in terms of obama care how fair are they and how hard of a slog will it be for the white house to try to turn this around? >> i think it will be difficult. ultimately they have to prove successful with the website. they have to have more positive stories that flood the marketplace and the media. look at story after story, morning after morning we're having this conversation of what the difficulties are, what the andy poling is, what we simply are confused by. they are going the need so much success even that's going to lag before they get to a pla
. all it needed was some fresh air. >> instead, all that's booming right now is the stock market and that's because the fed is printing more cash which is great for the rich, not good for everybody else. >> that's obama's version of tr and that's why we haven't had job creation. >> although we did have a good report on friday. >> but this is five years into a recovery and we have median incomes come down, five years showing signs of life. i'm in business, i want hope it lasts. >> i'm sending a body guard over to you, john, in washington because a lot of people in the streets may not share your point of view that income inequality is -- >> we got to allow john to answer that. >> look throughout history. it's those who get enormously rich who make our lives better. income inequality loves poor people. if you grow the economy lots of inequality but everyone will have jobs and the gadgets they want. >> i like a raising tide raises all boats. when it comes to a middle class in dis strotressdistress, detro forefront. rand paul at the bottom of the hour. up next, how all your online hol
reputation riding on that. they have had five years for obama care.gov and they still can't get it right. >> fox news by the way is more efficient than what ted turner created. i had to throw that in, forgive me. it is simple though. basically in the private sector you have a bottom line. in the public sector it's just a bottomless pit, right? >> that's right. it's not simply that the private sector does it better but that they are constantly looking for ways to be more innovative, more effective. when you look at the cyber monday sales from this year, they're increased by 17 and a half percent over last year and making it easier for people to purchase through their tablets, their phones. this is something tat completely eludes the federal government. >> rick, let me put outope here. the president has a lot of contacts in silicon valley, any chance he can get some of those guys working on his website? >> i'm told there is a number of people from silicon valley involved so far. we still have issues on the back end but they're aressing them. >> quickly, john, go ahead. >> i think he got th
it was a privilege and honor to be there. the first and only time they met is right after president obama was elected senator in 2005. it was at a hotel here in washington. the president and then senator was not on nelson mandela's schedule but he stayed strong and persevered and he got himself on that schedule. they had a brief meeting and there is an iconic photo take than day by one of the president's aides and that photo hangs in the west wing. >> the only photo that exists of that meeting, by the way. karen travers reporting live from washington. thank you. >>> mandela died at his home surrounded by his youngest daughters who were in london at the time attending a premier about of a film about his life. they asked the film be played until the end. the audience which included prince william, was only told that mandela died as the credits rolled. the marquee lit up in his honor. new york was the first stop on his u.s. tour in 1990. he wanted to go to harlem because the people knew about resistance and fighting for change. stay with abc news as we remember nelson mandela's lel legacy. information a
now and hear from brianna keilar. this was a personal moment for barack obama who talked about the influence of nelson mandela when he was a young man. >> reporter: that's right, john. it was just huge. president obama was 19 years old when he first got involved with the anti-apartheid movement. the first time he gave what being call a political speech was back in 1981. he was a sophomore at occidental college when he spoke out against apartheid. for president obama, nelson mandela was a personal hero and personal idol who struggled his earliest ambitions. >> i am one of the first who grew inspiration from nelson mandela's life. my first political action, the first thing i ever did that involved an issue of policy or politics was a protest against apartheid. >> reporter: they met in person only briefly in 2005 before obama became president. the two leaders, each standing in history as the first black president of his nation, spoke occasionally by phone. president obama penned the forward for mandela's 2010 memoir "conversations with myself." he wrote his example helped awakened
. this is a hallmark of the obama era not just demagoguing the right but also demagoguing elements within the democratic party that one to have a serious conversation about fiscal burdens. stuart: now we have obamacare and it is can out. sure the moderate democrats will say we cannot get reelected if you do this. >> you are seeing that from democrats in purple states taking that kind of line. will you see senate democrats, people like harry reid say we need to start distancing ourselves. stuart: will harry reid say hold on a second, mr. president? not sure about this. >> i will not make that prediction. i don't think he will. i agree with you because the far left which controls the democratic party and has since 1960 with one period of renaissance during the clinton periods but they have run this party and our ideological. they are not pragmatic, they are about remaking the economy into a redistributive model so you won't see that kind of change but there are so few moderate democrats to wage this fight. they have been decimated. stuart: on a moderate democrats right? will they get decima
president. you looking at the scene. a man who became a towering symbol for civil rights for strength, for unity. >> days to come, we will bring you extensive coverage, detailed coverage of his life, president obama spoke about mandela minutes after his death was announced, here is what he said. >> we will not likely see the likes of nelson mandela again. so it falls to us to be the example he set, to make decisions guarded not by haste, but by love. never discount the difference that one person can make. strive for a future that is worthy of his sacrifice. >> . >> right now let's pause and give thanks the r the fact that nelson mandela lived, a pan who took history, in his hands. bent the arc of the moral universes towards justice, may god bless his memory, and keep him at peace. >> the president of the united states, again, live pictures in outside nelson mandela's home tonight, and here in new york, a live picture of the apollo theater, the same the venue in harlem, tonight the marque honors nelson mandela. here is a picture of the marque, we are getting ready for a live shot. we h
there are sort of in some ways parallel tracts. talk about the u.s., and apartheid in south africa, right? >> we picketed with with them. we were there. >> we appreciate it. and president obama has paid tribute to the life of nelson mandela as well. >> that swept college campuses at that time, the first time he ever spoke to a public audience, he had said many times was on behalf of nelson mandela and the antiapartheid movement. he came to the briefing room, he spoke very eloquently. here is more of what he had to say. >> at his trial in 1964. nelson mandela closed a statement from the dock, says i have fought against white domination. uh it is an ideal which i hope to live for, and to achieve. but if needs be, it is an ideal for which i'm prepared to die. >> nelson mandela. made it real. he achieved more than could be expected of any man. today he has gone home. and we have lost one of the most influential courageous, and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth. he no longer belongs to us, he belongs to the ages. >> as a newly elected senator in 2005, sena
: it is divided government. you have the senate run by democrats, the house run right the house run by republicans. leadership for a longtime hasn't really been able to completely control their members. there is a lot of opposition to president obama, which does not make compromise easy. we are at a unique time in history where no one is able to get along or agree on any of the big things. one last point i would make is a lot of republicans say they don't think that the measure should be bills passed in terms of whether congress is productive. i think they are trying to fight the battle on the health-care live coverage begins at 4:00 a.m. eastern. upset with the press, oo, because they cover my mental health work the first me meetings i had. then he never showed up anymore. mental health is not a sexy issue. we toured the country, found out what was needed, develop legislation. past the mental health system act of 1980. it passed through congress one month before jenny was involuntarily retired from the white house. >> tonight at 9:00 eastern on c- span and c-span3. >> the line is really the centr
to have more self-confidence but before then so in the obama case to look in their rearview mirror. for the presidential power is fascinating and to answer that with uncertainty. >> with this idea of education what to retake the journalistic and historic for those to right to use to think about these things try to educate the public how the politicians need time to be educated? it is not tribulation of. so credit the source. but yet but yet arthur writing about jackson roosevelt related to dan quayle of his time running for not a good time. [laughter] fdr learned kennedy from the moment of the bay of pigs reaching out to the eisenhower not the warmest of transitions between the two but yet that wonderful pulitzer prize-winning picture of the bet what gate at kids david after the bay of pigs where kennedy has called the old guy and said helped a. and he was learning. what did he do? he did not have the beating so he had a third meeting october 1862. arthur understood but to be in the white house that as always narrative's these sayings do take time. flesh and blood. >> also the best
of the agreement right there. what's the reaction of the obama admks? what's been the reaction of the negotiators? do they have egg on their faces? do they look a little foolish from this agreement they've struck? we haven't heard anything from the current negotiators. there's also no stop in the missile testing. if iran has a nuclear weapon, if they have the fuel for a nuclear weapon, and if they have the capability to deliver that weapon through missile testing, i'd say they've got something. there's also no stopping terrorism from iran and there's no stop in human rights abuses. many americans aren't aware that there are americans who are eing held hostage today in iran. when ronald reagan dealt with the soviet union to try to end the cold war, ronald reagan handed the soviets a list of dissidents that he wanted freed. in order for him to begin these talks with the soviet union. he sent a signal to the soviet union. it said in america, we believe every american life counts. that sent a very strong message. in the case of the obama administration negotiators they didn't even bring it up. they d
at the end of 2008 and early 2009 when president obama took office, and not only has the trajectory been consistently in the right direction, if you will note when we first began positive job creation in the wake of the great recession, it was right around when the affordable care act passed. this is obviously not a direct correlation. but we are moving in the right direction. the information i cited in the beginning about the positive effects of the affordable care act on reducing growth in health-care costs combined with the steady job creation we have seen for so many months reinforces a number of things. about the affordable care act and about the need the president a few days ago to continue to focus on those move in theng the right direction and increasing job growth even further. with that, i will take your questions. jim? >> on the president's travels to africa for the nelson mandela services, could you give us specific details of what the timing might be? there is a memorial service also a funeral. mr. mandela is also lying in state. and will the president invite former u.s. pre
too. but it's more manifest right now. indiana is the example he didn't vote for the affordable care act or obama care or dodd frank regular latering the banks and so forth and so on, it was other stuff. but the point was -- this is the data point. and this is what has many people -- the gerrymander has split the house. you have people on the far right, the far left. the president -- the districts are drawn. all republican, all democrat. in the senate, it's two things. the fact that no one votes the primaries, which is the point i'm about to make, and the role of big money. you asked me what changed? there was a case decided by the supreme court that now allows unlimited amounts of money to be donated to flow into the campaign. so what happened to dick luger. first -- this was not a secret election. there's millions of dollars on advertising. i knew there was a big election. everybody knew the election was coming up. the voter turnout on the primary, 18%. one in five eligible republican voters. the same thing for democratic primaries. who are the 8%? the most partisan, the most ideol
a minimum wage that in real terms right now is below where it was when harry truman was in office. >> republican leaders took issue with the president's approach. house speaker john boehner suggesting mr. obama's policy created the very problems he described. >>> another government shutdown looming next month they are trying to hammer out a budget deal now. republicans and democrats are said to be 100 billion apart with that gap narrowing. republican congressman paul ryan and democratic senator patty murray are heading up those talks. >>> the white house in full holiday mode. first lady michelle obama showing off the decorations. 70,000 visitors expected the next two weeks and treated to two life sized replicas of the family's portuguese waterdogs made out of black satin ribbons. have you heard about the latest white house scandal? one of the real first dogs sonny got a little excited yesterday and knocking over that little lovely, adorable 2-year-old girl from alabama. we have photos of the incident. coming up here, this is before the crime in question. we have another picture he
being razed out here right now. investigators will use that derailment and this derailment and see if there is any possible link here. >> alexander, appreciate you being there. thank you. >>> night and day. that is how the main obama care website fixer upper described the difference between healthcare.gov now and when it launched back on october 1st. jeff saying in a conference call on sunday the website now works smoothly for the vast majority of users. >> after clearinging through fewer than a hundred bucks through the month of october, the speed has more than tripled with more than 400 bugs fiched and eliminating critical glitches and making experience to the consumer experience better throughout the site. >> the administration says the obama care site can handle as many as 50,000 concurrent users and 800,000 consumer visits during the day. >>> they say the terror threat in the united states is growing. democratic senator dianne feinstein and mike rogers share that view. both said changing tactics and improving weapons make it harder right now to warn the war on terror. >> are w
finish this session. >> that's right. [laughter] >> but it is a -- to by mind, we're discussing a subject of perennial significance but at a particular moment of urgency because president obama did do something with the affordable care act that democratic presidents had been trying to do, well, been trying to do since t.r.. so for presidents of both parties, including president nixon, i should say, and the idea, i think, came from heritage. but it is not a moment where the natural american anxieties about government -- which is as old as the republic, older than the republic -- it does not feel as though those are are being tamped down and reassured by this more center-left era. it feels as though they're actually being razed. and i'm wondering what you think in thinking about this historically and practically through the lens of your father's work, your own work. >> well, you know -- >> what you think the future looks like, the next couple of years. >> it is interesting because as i said earlier, my father was a great proponent of activist government. the republicans have, what they have
right -- the house run by republicans. leadership for a longtime hasn't really been able to completely control their members. there is a lot of opposition to president obama, which does not make compromise easy. we are at a unique time in where no one is able to get along or agree on any of the big things. would make is a lot of republicans say they don't think that the measure should be bills passed in terms of whether congress is productive. are trying to fight the battle on the health-care law and are being more of. we have been talking with ian swanson. thank you for joining us this morning. now to marietta, georgia. david is on our line for independents. is whenmy main comment we look at the nsa spying activity, if you know a lot about somebody you can manipulate their behavior. looking at a americans and foreigners abroad, i think about a lot of people who don't have much. now there is this force that has the ability to know anything about them. think it is any different than some he cheating and car's. you know aketing, if lot about the person you are trying to influence and pur
-- >> right. >>> let's move now to our political gut check of the morning. president obama is recommitting himself to closing the growing gap between the rich and the poor. in a speech he delivered from one of washington's working class neighborhoods, he said making the economy work for all americans is in his words the defining challenge of our time. here to talk more about this, john avlon, cnn political analyst and executive editor of the daily beast. good morning, john. >> good morning. >> the president has talked about this and pushed to are this issue before. why now? >> the president and white house is pushing this idea. he wants to make this a signature issue of his second term. first of all going back to his roots as a community organizer, this is a president who cares about these issues. thiscy fundamental fault line in the current debate inside the democratic party. you have the centrist democrats of the bill clinton era that were always closest to business. then you have someone who is fixated and focused on addressing this issue of inequality over the course of this presidency
concedes. armed services judiciary member congressman randy forbes of the new obama doctrine and rising tensions in the south china sea. join us tonight at 7:00 eastern. stuart: something very special, the king of diamonds for you. a very special diamond, you are looking at it right now. here to describe it, you are going to sell them. >> second time in twenty-five years. 52 carrots. in south india. the most famous diamonds in the world. and joseph, which we show on fox on $21 million. stuart: the king of diamonds, it really is special. >> the first diamond known to man, the first diamond ever. stuart: i didn't know it. >> the earliest mine, developing 300 years. stuart: may i pick it up? stuart: can't get this but i am holding it. to show your viewers that. get a sense before it is brought up, and it wouldn't crack. i am holding it. it was sold 25 years ago for 7,000,005. for that time an unheard of price, supposed to assure you house specials this is because even back then, do it out in the auction room. stuart: how much will it go for today? >> december 10th i hope over $10 million.
of people care about where sometimes lots of people will tune in. will tailor the a constitutional right to same-sex marriage? yes, there's a big part of the population that's interested in that. is obama care constitutional? a huge number of people will focus on it in an institution that won't adapt itself because it's very staid to getting that information out there. in terms of what it is we're able to do as part of a national conversation, it should be clear to everyone that we are hardly alone. so, for example, american lawyer media, for which tony now works, has this wonderful publication, supreme court insider, which is getting more information about the court. pete reports on the law, the justice department, the supreme court. instead of one platform in nbc news, msnbc, and the website of nbc news. so i do think that we are far from alone in taking advantage of the lower cost of distribution. we should talk about the economic models. tony operates on one. some of the materials free through the blog. some of it is a subscription only through the supreme court insider. pete's work
